Cave Story+

Cave Story is one of those games that it seems will just never go away for good. The early 2000’s freeware game made big waves in the then fledgling indie scene, and has since been ported to just about every device that can reasonably run it. Throughout all those ports, incremental updates have been made that have improved the game in relatively minor ways, but there still has yet to be any major sequel to the classic.

Even so, Nicalis obviously is keen to keep the game relevant, as the company has just confirmed that Cave Story+ on the Switch will be receiving a fairly notable free update in August. This update will add in the option to play the game with classic graphics, just like in the original release. So for those of you that just have to play the game in its original format and can’t be bothered to download it for PC, this one’s for you.
